Task Scheduling

Laravel Zero ships with the Task Scheduling system of Laravel. To use the scheduler, you need to periodically execute your application, and for that you need to add the following Cron entry to your server:

* * * * * php /path-to-your-project/your-app-name schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

You may define all of your scheduled tasks in the schedule method of the Artisan command:

    public function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
    {
        $schedule->command(static::class)->everyMinute();
    }

Viewing scheduled tasks

The Schedule List component can be used to view a list of tasks that are scheduled in your application.

Using the app:install Artisan command you can install the schedule-list component:

php <your-app-name> app:install schedule-list

After installation, the schedule:list command will be available to use. The binary name will be set by default in the config/schedule-list.php file, but you may need to update this to make sure the command outputs correctly. Note that Unix systems wrap the command parameters in single quotes, whereas Windows wraps them in double quotes so both will be needed in the configuration file.

Behind the scenes, the schedule-list command uses the hmazter/laravel-schedule-list package. You can find more details on how to use the command and configuration there.
